What to Expect at WordCamp Mexico City
WordCamps are usually weekend events, so more is spread out. However, since WordCamp in Mexico City is a one-day event, you can expect a whole bunch of goodies to be filled into a single day.
Here are some of the speakers you will want to be sure to see:
- Colors and Typographic Rhythm on Your Website
Two of the more difficult tasks to consider when building a website are choosing the right colors and fonts. In this session, Marco Berrocal will talk about these issues and also how you can use color theory to help with the decision. This talk is sponsored by GreenGeeks as well.
- How to Audit WordPress to Improve Speed and Security
There is arguably nothing a developer spends more time on than website speed and security. Especially since both of these aspects directly affect Google rankings. Join John Marreros as he shows you how to audit your WordPress website for both of these issues for free.
- Advanced Use of Git and WordPress
We all know that Git is a massive system with a lot of functionality. Interested in how to use Git and WordPress together properly? This is the session for you. Mario Aguiar will talk about the secrets of using both together.
- Content Strategy to Increase Web Traffic
As Google says, content is king. So what better way to learn about a solid content strategy than sitting in on a session with one of the best content strategists around. Join Mariana Salas as she shows you how to increase and improve authority on certain issues. She will also talk about the best ways to distribute content on different digital channels.
- My Blog, My Brand
Are you using your blog as part of your corporate brand? Many of us do, and we spend a lot of time developing it. Dafne Delgado will talk about the importance of seeing a blog as a corporate brand. Including copyright, investing in external products, apps or advertising in some cases, positioning yourself as a product and how to compete against large companies. She will also touch on monetization and the importance of it.
With almost 20 sessions to be a part of, WordCamp Mexico City is going to be an amazing experience for anyone who can attend.
